Cognitive decline in veterans: Journal offers open-access issue
from By Denise A. Valenti
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs estimates that 23.2 million living veterans have served in the United States armed services in times of both war and peace. As these men and women age, there is concern about the increased risk of potential cognitive impairment and neurodegenerative disease. In order to bring attention to this issue and to provide a forum for open discussion, Alzheimer's and Dementia — the professional journal of the Alzheimer's Association — has given open access to its June issue, which focuses on the overall problem of cognitive decline and dementia in soldiers and veterans.
